Very informative visitor center - effective museum with some really good artifacts. The movie is particularly good as an overview. We hope to return when we have time to walk the trails.

Well maintained piece of history!! A very accessible trail leads through the site and actually takes you to the remains of the fort ( not a recreation). Take some bottled water in summer as the heat and humidity will sneak up on you.
